Attractive Internship Program for Young Talent
A special internship program regularly succeeds in getting talented young people to come to the Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz’s PRISMA Cluster of Excellence – Precision Physics, Fundamental Interactions and Structure of Matter. Seven students were welcomed this summer. Zhiyuan Wang is one of them. He took the opportunity to work on his own project in nuclear physicist Prof. Dr. Dmitry Budker’s team.
